Audience Reviews for Prank Encounters: Season 1

  • May 07, 2022
    Every bit as bad as you've heard. Beyond derivative. It's laughably unconvincing.
  • Nov 29, 2021
    I mostly started watching this series because Gaten Matarazzo (from Stranger Things) is in it. I liked it, it was funny, and sometimes scary. But I agree with most people who are saying that it's too much the same as other prank shows, on one hand, and that it's just a bit weird, on the other hand. I am still in doubt if this whole series is staged, or they are really pranking people. I hope it's real though...

    I know I've hit the bottom of the barrel and it's time to go to bed when I start watching this lame show. I love Scare Tactics, and always genuinely laugh my head off and it's scary but this is only similar in terms of concept. This show is just fake and really, really dumb.
  • Apr 09, 2021
    This prank show is really well thought out! You can't fake the reactions of the people being pranked, and the actors do a good job portraying their characters. Some episodes had me in tears laughing. I wanted NOT to like it because I find prank shows cheesy and kind of staged and watching people get embarrassed is painful for me, but this was funny not cruel. The make-up and costumes look better then in some movies I've seen. I don't see why all the negative reviews. Keep the seasons coming!

    Really fun show. I don't get the negative reviews for this. It's plenty of fun. I recommend it to anyone who likes Alien related stuff and pranks. The perfect show for me to watch to cheer up my mood. Give it a try!
  • Dec 28, 2020
    Don't listen to the negative reviews, you must watch for yourself because I was thoroughly entertained, laughing like crazy on some of the episodes. Teddy Bear Scare was my favorite!

    Gay men in practiccally every single episode ? Definitely unsettling can't enjoy with my 7 year old children 2 stars at best it seems very amateur and not polished enough maybe a different host/director would help
  • Mar 01, 2020
    With Gaten Matarazzo, it's probably worth your time.
  • Jan 24, 2020
    My family enjoys watching it. It's nice that there are two people being pranked, the stories are set up well, they're elaborate, and it's fun to get to know the people being pranked a bit. They're all hired as temps, for one night work, and they get paid for the show.

    I think the Netflix getting desperate for TV shows this show stinks and what the heck are they going to gay clubs and pick up those scared little freaking guys and oh my God the girls are worse than the guys I think it's a stage good job Netflix
